Why shop Indie?


When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:


The Economy

  • Spend $100 at a local business and $68 of that stays in your community.  Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  • Local businesses create higher paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • More of your taxes are reinvested in your community--where they belong.


The Environment

  • Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.


The Community

  • Local retailers are your friends, neighbors--support them and they’ll support you.
  • Local businesses donate to charities and events (especially local ones) at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.


Now is the time to stand up and join your fellow individuals in the IndieBound mission supporting local businesses and celebrating your independents.
